Funding in Canadian Philosophy PhD Programs??


Question

Hi, guys. I am an applicant to philosophy PhD programs this cycle. I am applying to programs in both America (15) and Canada (3). However, it is not until last week did I know (at least some) Canadian programs have a different funding policy as American programs.

In America, the programs usually waive the tuition and health insurance, and grant you 4,5-year funding that's barely enough to support your living, as they decide to admit you. For at least some Canadian programs, however, it seems they do not waive the tuition (though the tuition and insurance are cheap compared with America's), and the guaranteed funding doesn't suffice to pay your tuition + health insurance + all living expenses. Calgary requires applicants to attend their scholarship competition to get enough funding. And Western's website says its minimum funding add up to only 20,000 CAD?  I don't think this is enough to live and pay tuition.

I'm confused, guys -- Do philosophy PhD students in Canadian schools still pay a considerable portion from heir own pockets for their own study? Is there somewhere I can see the actual funding level of these programs?
